Banana Blueberry Swirl Frozen Dessert

Labels: , , ,

For a healthier frozen dessert I used bananas and added a swirl of pureed frozen blueberries. The bananas are sliced, frozen, then processed until smooth. The creamy bananas have no added sugar but I added a tablespoon each of sugar and heavy cream to the blueberries. It has a little bit of bitterness probably because the bananas were not overripe or I didn't fully remove the fibrous membrane on the bananas. I still like the frozen dessert though. Next time I'll add peanut butter, strawberries, or Nutella.

Banana Blueberry Swirl Frozen Dessert
3 overripe bananas, sliced
½ cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar, optional
  • Cover a small sheet pan with plastic wrap. Place the sliced bananas, cover with plastic wrap and leave in freezer until completely frozen.
  • Process bananas until very smooth, creamy, and look airy. Transfer into a container, cover with plastic wrap while pureeing the blueberries.
  • In the same food processor bowl, puree blueberries with sugar and heavy cream until smooth.
  • Transfer into a small container. Remove banana from freezer and spoon half cup into the ice cream container. Layer 3 tablespoons of blueberries, top with half cup of banana, then repeat ending with bananas on top layer. Make swirls using a table knife. Freeze for 30 minutes before serving.
